Never been a big commercial release buyer kind of guy. Crotchety skinflint? Cheap bastard? Penny pinching sourpuss? According to the wife the answer is affirmative all the way around. Well, it is times like this I consider changing my ways.

This dunsborne matrix of the DP16 Iowa show was recently added here and as a result appeared on my list of shows to check out (and, no, not only because it was free...well, OK, that's the reason). It may only be the second set here, but Holy Shit, what else do you need? First off, the quality of the mix is commercial release quality. Full and rich with Phil's thumping, low-end sledgehammer driving the beast. Nice. Mainly though, I've now got a new top 10 Scarlet/Fire. The transition jam alone almost brought me to tears in sections it is so beautiful. Keith has some fills that made my jaw drop so low on the way to work this AM that I can still taste the asphalt. He may have been in the midst of a serious physical/mental/spiritual decline, but is seems here that he has paid a visit to the Fountain of Youth and put out some of his finest work. Stunning.

I could go on and on, but I think I'll let the music do the talking this time. If you've never heard this one, you owe it to yourself to play it immediately. If you already have, why not revisit this beast? I've got a feeling you've been looking for an excuse to replace some items in your workspace. And the guy in the cubicle across the hall, you know, the one who is always giving you funny looks and condescending comments? Not only will this show do some damage to your stuff, there's a good chance it will leap across the hall into his space and unleash a maelstrom of sonic mayhem, leaving him (and his property) a smoking crater that will surely confound the building's facilities people.

I know i was glad to see this set finally get the recognition it deserves. The TOO is just THUNDERIN'!! Like a "pack of pachyderms". Love the Samson, too. To my ringing, tin ears, this show has a very "heavy" sound; it reminds me of some of the primal stuff as far as intensity and power.

What other shows are out there with this same thunder?
